Gather friends and family, ride your bike, walk or skate in this community parade – it’s for anyone and everyone! Neighborhoods and organizations are encouraged to make floats and join the fun too. And don’t forget your red, white and blue! For those new to the area, the Pied Piper Parade has nothing to do with the Silicon Valley sitcom.
